Likewise, the proximal detachment of the rectovaginal septum from the uterosacral ligaments may be associated with an enterocele, while the disruption of the distal attachment to the perineal body (Level III) may result in a perineocele. A reapproximation of the perineal body (perineorrhaphy) addresses a perineal weakness, while a plication of the rectovaginal fascia (posterior colporrhaphy) repairs a rectocele.
Finally weakness in the perineal body or perineocele is determined by palpating the thickness and integrity of the perineal body on rectal exam.
